The Liberal party is usually seen as the most sincere opponents to the anti-market extreme-left rhetoric from the Greens party but the preferences on their how-to-vote cards in the federal election being distributed at AEC pre-polls tell a different story.
In the marginal inner-city seat of Melbourne, the Liberals are effectively handing their votes to the extreme-left doom-boosting militant Greens political party by putting them ahead of the ALP.
On published polling, conservative preferences will hand the Greens party candidate, Adam Bandt, recently outed on a left-wing website as a Marxist, victory in the federal seat.
Itâ€™s a move that could backfire massively with concerned groups from regional Australia worried about electing the Greens to the House of Representatives where they could hold a policy gun to the head of any government. Business is apparently also gravely concerned about the impact the big-taxing and extremist Greens party could have on Australian industry.
The Greens party isnâ€™t shy about this either. They want to use the leverage they have to ensure their policies are implemented. Their policies are without question the most radical left-wing policies of any party that has elected representatives in Parliament.
As weâ€™ve seen, their election will mean death taxes, stripping away millions of dollars from independent schools, the closure of Australian zoos and the even the abolition of the poverty-busting World Bank will suddenly be on the agenda in Australia.
A potential nightmare scenario for the country is a Labor government clinging on to power with the help of the Greens party in the lower house, while retaining a majority with the Greens in the Senate. This will mean Labor will need to introduce Greens party policies to survive but also that theyâ€™ll have the numbers to pass them in both houses. The Greens party is no longer just a bit of fun. Australia could easily wake up to a government held hostage by the most politically successful extreme-left party in our history, far more successful than the Communist Party before them. While it make great copy for VEXNEWS, the damage to the country could be enormous.
Tony Abbott has revived the fortunes of the Liberal party by appearing to engage in frank, direct discussion with the people of Australia. Thereâ€™s nothing frank or direct about supporting those who oppose everything you believe in. Itâ€™s sleazy and wrong and itâ€™s time conservative voters called them out on it.
And the Greens party of course is the ungrateful recipient of votes from the parties they attack and denounce the most, Labor and Liberal. No wonder many Australians are cynical about the political process. It is always those who preach piety the loudest who are the sleaziest, the ugliest and most putrid of all.
The Liberals and Labor should have nothing to do with the extremist outfit, the Greens party.
